CINCINNATI — First it was the Pro Bowl, now it's the All-Pro team.
Bengals safety Jessie Bates wasn't named to the 2020 Associated Press All-Pro First Team.
The AP announced their selections on Friday afternoon.
Three safeties made the team, including Tyrann Mathieu of the Chiefs, Steelers' star Minkah Fitzpatrick and Budda Baker of the Cardinals.
The Bengals were one of 16 organizations that didn't have a player on the All-Pro First Team.
Bates was selected for the second-team. He was joined by Seattle safety Jamal Adams.
At only 23-years-old, Bates is one of the NFL's rising stars and the Bengals' best defensive player. He hid a lot of their flaws this season.
Bates finished with 109 tackles, three interceptions and 15 passes defensed. Safety Vonn Bell was the only Bengals player that finished the season with more tackles (114).
Bates is the Bengals' first All-Pro selection since 2015.
